Miss Louisa Manson

Miss Louisa M—ns—n, No. 12, Wells-street.

What various charms can M—ns—n boast,
By nature thus befriended;
Whose legs impart a charm when cross'd,
And charming when extended.

Observe her well, the oblique glance, the lascivious look, the frequent heave of the breasts fully speak her inward feelings; but can any of our readers account for her immoderate fondness for sugar plumbs? it must certainly be that that induced, her to take the famous little Jemmy B—tl—r into her train, the upper mouth he keeps constantly supplied with its favourite food; but we fear Jemmy has not parts sufficient to supply the lower with a tenth part of its necessary food. She therefore solicits the favours of the good natured public for the necessary supplies to that inchanting spot.

She is of a good size, and every limb well proportioned. Knowing the beauty of her hand and arm, she takes particular care they shall not pass unnoticed for want of being seen; convinced of the delicate proportion of her leg and foot, she is very careful their covering shall not discredit them, and has a pleasing knack of keeping them constantly exposed to sight; and being taught by the eyes of her admirers the influence her neck and breasts command, she covers them with so thin a veil, that the smallest blue branch is easily covered; her eyes she cannot hide, nor does she wish it; they are plain indications of nature's central spot, and beam with all the fire of the enchanting spot. Two guineas is her price, and should Jemmy be there he must retire if she thinks fit.
